Attention all burger-lovers, cult-favourite American burger joint, Five Guys has opened its first Singapore store at Plaza Singapura.
Occupying a space of over 460 sqm, the outlet at Plaza Singapura is located along a prime stretch on the ground floor of the mall overlooking the Orchard Road belt. Currently comprising an indoor area that seats up to 52 patrons, the store will eventually also house an outdoor seating area that will increase the outlet’s capacity to accommodate up to over 160 patrons.
The Singapore store is the global burgers and fries joint’s first franchise in Asia, and the latest addition to Zouk Group’s growing food and beverage portfolio as part of its lifestyle expansion plans.
“After many months of planning, we’re thrilled to finally unveil the very first Five Guys store in Singapore. Five Guys is an exciting addition to our portfolio, and we were fortunate to be presented with an opportune space in the city that is highly accessible, so that fans of Five Guyscan come together to enjoy their favourite burgers with ease. This first outlet will be the bedrock upon which we grow the brand in Singapore, and we look forward to more to come,” says Andrew Li, Chief Executive Officer of Zouk Group.
Five Guys is a family run burgers & fries joint offering a mouth-watering menu made from scratch. Five Guys has been a Washington, D.C. area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to three of the Murrell brothers: “Start a business or go to college.” The business route won and the Murrells opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington, Virginia, USA. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie, the little burger joint quickly developed a cult-like following. Customers voted the burger “#1” in the D.C. metro area.
During the 1980s and 1990s, the Murrells perfected their simple concept. Five Guys became The Place to get a fresh, juicy burger with all the toppings you could stuff between two fresh-baked buns. Two more brothers joined the team and as the family grew, so did the business. Early in 2003, Jerry and Janie, together with the “Five Guys”, began offering franchise opportunities. In just under 18 months, more than 300 units had been sold.
Now, decades after FIVE GUYS first opened, there are locations across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, with planned expansion into Australia, Africa, Central and South America. By maintaining a simple ethos, coupled with the highest quality, the Murrells continue to follow through on the vision they outlined in 1986.
Five Guys’ mission is to redefine the global burger landscape by focusing on freshness and quality. With no freezers and no microwaves, it is built on the premise that all burgers and fries are made fresh every day. The meat is a perfected 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio. Patties are hand-made seven days a week on site. The bread, which is Five Guys’ only proprietary item, is baked fresh five days a week in a locally contracted bakery. The same unique recipe is used globally. Potatoes are cut fresh daily, soaked to remove the starch and double-fried in pure, no cholesterol peanut oil to create the firm exterior and fluffy ‘mashed-potato’ interior that Five Guys fries are known for.
